Pilates is a full body workout which concentrates on strengthening deep skeletal muscles with a particular focus on core stability.
Pilates will improve your posture, strength, flexibility, balance and body awarness.
Movement is controlled, centred, precise, with flow and lateral breathing.
This low impact form of exercise also encourages mindfulness as you move with precision and your breath.
Pilates will aid in the reduction or elimination of postural aches and pains, most significantly back pain. Fresh oxygenated blood is delivered to every part of your body as you move with awareness and control.
In Pilates the chance of injury is much lower than with other forms of exercise. Top athletes use Pilates as a conditioning programme as it create balance in the body and increases the mind body connection. Creating balance in your muscles also helps to reduce future injuries and keeps you fit to enjoy other sports and activities for longer.
